Montreal WorldCon Day…um, what day is it again?

And so the World Science Fiction Convention in Montreal winds down. We were at the convention centre at 10 a.m. for me to give a reading with Alison Sinclair and Heidi Lampietti…but the only person to show up was there to hear Heidi, and Heidi, it turned out, had to stay in the dealers’ room …

Montreal WorldCon Day 3: Food, glorious food…

It would be hard to improve on yesterday, when I won the Aurora Award for Marseguro (did I mention I won the Aurora Award? I did? Hmmm, imagine that), but today was another good day at the World Science Fiction Convention here in Montreal. After a great breakfast at a local cafe, I had my …

I’ve now got an author’s page on Amazon!

Author Central, the author’s service on Amazon, is still in beta, but it’s expanding, and I’ve now got my own author’s page. Check it out! It’s a great place to find all my books listed in one hand-dandy location. Be the first on your block to collect them all! (Hey, that approach works for toy-stuffed …

So, on Saturday I returned to Moose Jaw, this time with my lovely wife and daughter, for the final two days of the Festival of Words. My big event was at 4 p.m. in the Mae Wilson Theatre of the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre, a beautifully restored 430-s eatVaudeville-era theatre. There I conducted an on-stage …

Festival of Words: the first day

Yesterday at the Festival of Words went well, though I was late to the party, which, after all, began on Thursday. In fact, I showed up for my reading without passing by whatever registration desk there must have been somewhere and so proceeded without a name tag. Fortunately, no one threw me out for not …

The Saskatoon Book Report Interview

I was just a little too late getting home last evening to record the whole thing, but I managed to capture the bulk of the interview Ian Goodwillie, host of the Saskatoon Book Report on Saskatoon’s CFCR community radio station, conducted with me a couple of weeks ago and which aired yesterday. And here it …

Listen to a radio interview with me!

I’ll be on Saskatoon’s CFCR Community Radio’s Saskatoon Book Report program today at 6:30 p.m. Saskatchewan time (that’s Central Standard Time, NOT Central Daylight Time, thank you very much; we don’t hold with that new-fangled high-falutin clock-changing nonsense here, nosirree!). You can listen as host Ian Goodwillie attempts to get coherent answers out of me …

A month of Terra Insegura/Marseguro give-aways begins today!

Tomorrow’s the big day when Terra Insegura officially hits bookstore shelves, and  so, with great fanfare, I announce the Great Terra Insegura Book Give-Away Contest, twin to the very successful Marseguro give-away I ran when that book came out–except with one great exception: this time, I’m giving books to two people every week for the next month. Here’s how it …
